***SAFE 03/24/16*** NEUTERED 1 YEAR OLD KITTEN ROY IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY BUT WILL DIE BECAUSE HE IS STRESSED IN THE SHELTER!! It is amazing how a large institution like the ACC cannot seem to handle any type of cat or kitten who exhibits any type of stress reaction to being locked up in a cage in the shelter! ROY was found by someone who said he was hanging around their workplace and crying. Sounds like a lost pet to me. After all, cats don’t check in clinics and neuter themselves!! So this person brought him into the ACC thinking they would either find the owner or find Roy a home. WRONG!! Roy leaned into petting and rolled over and purred on his assessment but because he whined and swished his tail back and forth while staring at the assessor they took this as a red flag and punished this kitten with an EXPNOCHILD rating while attributing this to stress from the shelter! ROY IS A WONDERFUL LITTLE BOY WHO ONLY WANTS LOVE AND ATTENTION AND A FUREVER HOME. HE WILL BE FINE ONCE HE IS OUT AND ABLE TO DECOMPRESS AND RELAX. GIVE ROY A HOME TO CALL HIS OWN TONIGHT! EMAIL THE HELP DESK FOR RESCUE INFO AT [email protected] TO SAVE HIS LIFE.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Roy was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. His finder reports he has been around their workplace and has been crying. She was able to bring him into the care center, but Roy became defensive and did not allow handling upon intake. He was also very nervous during his initial medical exam. Reaction to Assessor: Roy meows upon approach and remains calm. Reaction when softly spoken to: Roy meows again, but starts to breathe rapidly. Reaction to cage door opening: Roy gets up immediately and comes to the front. Reaction to touch: Roy sniffs the assessor’s hand and allows gentle petting along his head. He whines during the interaction, but leans into petting, rolls over, and purr. He is quick to turn around to look at the assessor when pet along his back at times. He continues to whine and his tail starts to sway from side to side. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Roy appears to appreciate petting and attention, but he may be easily overstimulated or stressed in the shelter environment. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Roy becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
